Payroll Deduction

The School District of Independence established a 501(c)(3) Foundation in 1992 which serves a variety of district, student and staff needs.  All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.  The Foundation has its own Board of Directors and is an incorporated entity through the State of Missouri.

You can make contributions to the Foundation through payroll deduction to the Foundation General Fund, which benefits programs including scholarships, Project Shine, Holiday Helpers, Inspire Volunteers, Student Dual Credit assistance, ISD Academies, Classroom Grants, New Teacher Grants and more.

You will need to complete a new payroll deduction form each year.  To start your payroll deduction, please print and complete Payroll Deduction ENROLLMENT, and return it to the Foundation office via email or inter-office mail.

If you wish to cancel your payroll deduction, please print and complete CANCEL Payroll Deduction, and return it to the Foundation office via email or inter-office mail.  For more information about the Foundation, contact Amy Knipp at

The Foundation truly appreciates your support!

Your ongoing contributions make a difference in the lives of students and staff in the ISD.
